A collection of short stories:

#1: Ringo Hoppe no Koi
Takami has a HUGE problem! She blushes at the drop of a hat, so everyone knows what she is thinking! She finally makes a decision to stop letting her fear of embarrassment control her -- she gets a job where her crush is working so that she can confess her feelings to him... but then things go awry in an unexpected way!

#2: Hinatabokko no Heya
Tomo and Daisuke have been childhood friends for ten years. Whenever something goes wrong with Daisuke, he finds refuge in Tomo's sunshine-abundant room. When Tomo asks Daisuke for a 'date' with him as her birthday present, will the equations of their relationship change?

#3: 24 Ko no Kurisumasu (24 Pieces of Christmas)
Rio met Ian, the son of her father's friend, during Christmas when she was in the third grade. Ian turned out to be a devil with an angelic smile. That Christmas remains as an irritating memory for Rio, considering how Ian played multiple pranks on her and bullied her throughout the day. After that Christmas, Ian's family moved away to England and she didn't get to see him since then. But Ian sends Christmas cards for her every year. Years later, during Rio's 17th Christmas, Ian is back in Japan......planning some new pranks?

^_^ Loved this. It would've been a 10 were it not for one small cliche. smile Very original, and much loved and recommended for whenever you're feeling gloomy, or you simply have time to kill ^_^

while i was reading this i had this really weird feeling in my stomach because of the sweetness!! it was really very cute!!

Apple-Cheek Love- i really like manly, tsundere guys!! and he was wearing a bandana!! which was a plus! and the girl was really cute too.. maybe because of the unusual blush.. its apple shape >.<

Room in Sunlight- i dint like the girl i think that she a bit pushy and childish.. and i dnt got the boy, at first he said the her kiss was disgusting and then he still go out with her in the end.. i mean come on!! but i admit that the ending kiss was just perfect!~!

24th Christmas- i admit that it was a reallly cute story but to be able to still be in love with his childhood friend that he had never saw in all those years! god.. so unrealistic..but oh well thats just shoujo.. and
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
i cant believe that she still slept with him after breaking up with his boyfriend becuse of sex! sorry cant see the logic..
but Ian is incredibly cute because of his uber long eyelashes..

bbut since of the great cutenss and sweetness.. i cant put a low score on this one.. smile)

This is just regarding the first story in the volume, but the story was a nice read. The girl is relateable (shy and inexperienced) and is probably a typical shoujo girl, but still fun enough to watch. The guy has a little less character than her, but isn't completely flat, like some guys in shoujo stories.
